    Rampectomy sounds painful. Is that covered by Medicare?

    I don't think he's even shot it yet, it was broke coming from Kahr brand new....

    Bawanna is correct. I discovered the broken follower when I was loading the magazine for the first time. The front leg was broken off.

    I would advise staying away from the Fiocchi ammo.

    I never had an issue with Fiocchi ammo either until I used it in an MK9. I'm no munitions expert and this is just my own take. I noticed when shooting, that every so often, I would have a failure to eject, and the round would be jammed against the feed ramp. I never had this issue with any other ammo and thought that I may have been limp wristing. I purposely fired a bunch of ammo from different manufacturers like WWB, Blazer, Federal, FMJ's and JHP's. Never had an issue. By chance, I took a round from each company and set them up on the table. To my surprise, the Fiocchi ammo was noticeably longer than the rest except for the Fed. HST brand. I had a few failures with those also. I know I wasn't limping the gun, so my conclusion was that because the Fiocchi was longer, it was too long for the firearm to operate properly. Long enough to get hung up on the feed ramp. I wasn't about to get out the Dremel and start taking some metal off of the feed ramp, just to use Fiocchi ammo. I couldn't trust it, so I couldn't use it. Plenty of other brands out there and I still use it in my revolver and others, It may not be an issue in your firearm. It was just a heads up. I don't think I'm the only one who's had an issue with Fiocchi ammo. It could also be the case size on the primer end.

    Thanks.
    From what I remember, it was fine in my p9 and pm9. I shot it all up years ago though.

    I did have an issue shooting Fiocchi in my CW40. Seems that the case rim on Fiocchi is thicker than every other manufacturer and I would have failures to feed because of it. I opened up the extractor a bit (there is a post on what to do somewhere on here, may be geared to the 380s but still applicable) and I haven't had an issue since. But I have been staying away from the Fiocchi ammo.
